With it being the school holidays an' all, I'm more likely than usual to say yes when I hear Can we buy one of those? But even I didn't need much persuading when The Small One spotted these yesterday:
How long is it since you had a Sherbert Fountain? They were never my favourites (actually I think I only ever had one); but just one look now reminds me of the sunny 70's - the sugar, the e-numbers, the weird feeling when a sharp bit of spangle cut the top layer off your tongue - ahh.
Rhubarb and Custard chews, colour changing Spacedust (wasn't ever allowed that one), Tutti Fruttis: recognise any of these? "Budgetary constraints" (not enough pocket money) usually meant that Penny Chews were at the top of my list. Or Highland Toffee I'm not sure if my teeth would be up to either of those delights anymore; but in case yours are, the Small One set to work this morning and came up with a few sources. Roll up, Roll up, Get Your Pear Drops Here..
If you fancy making some retro Edinburgh Rock, you can find my recipe here
Today I'm Loving..if you like creating better than chomping, I've got a brilliant mailorder woolshop today. Jannette sells bargain end-of-line and hard-to-get-hold-of yarns and I've found her service excellent.
